that goes beyond how this ep has made Sam lose what little sympathy he still had left after s8.
In fact here are several things I can say about this ep, some are even positive, and I probably will sooner or later.
But I can say one thing that this ep proved beyond a doubt.
There is no way that Sam is a bottom or submissive in any meaning of the world. he's far too dominant, demanding to be in control of every aspect of his life. The idea of Sam submitting to anyone just goes beyond any suspension of disbelief I could ever get past.
